5d6 by Robert Bevan - Book Review by Morgan Hobbes

Book Review | 4 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Four short stories I’ve been waiting to read finally made it into Kindle Unlimited. I grabbed all of them as part of Robert Bevan’s 5D6 release where he rolls up 6 shorts into one book (the first two reviewed here). As usual, Mister Bevan proves himself the master of low brow humour. In these final four he delivers an astounding array of disgusting and hilarious scenarios for our hapless heroes to fight their way out of. Tossing the Salaad –...

Book Review | The Totally Legend of Brandon Thighmaster by Steve Wetherell

Book Review | The Totally Legend of Brandon Thighmaster by Steve Wetherell

My plans for the weekend went out the window the second I received an email from Amazon telling me about new releases from authors I love. This one in particular is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long, long time. I immediately jumped onto Kindle Unlimited and grabbed my copy. Brandon Thighmaster, sexually attractive monk from the Temple of the Many Fists, ab-crunched his way into my world when he joined the Authors and Dragons podcast which I’ve...

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Whaaaat? A  collaboration between two of my favourite authors – Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell? Shut Up and Take My Money! Or more accurately shut up and take my Kindle Unlimited payment in about 8 week’s time. But still, how could I resist. Hell’s Titties, a small town nestled between the “twin peaks” of East and West Tittie in the Appalachian Mountains, is the unwitting town sitting atop an ancient evil. The Blurb: Nestled between two peaks in the foothills...

Book Review | So Not a Hero by S.J. Delos

Book Review | So Not a Hero by S.J. Delos

Hmmm, where to start. I grabbed So Not a Hero by SJ Delos because I’m going through a bit of a superhero kick at the moment and the story sounded interesting. It is, don’t get me wrong. The story and world-building is solid and enjoyable. The main character has a ton of back-story and issues she needs to work through and you begin rooting for her pretty much straight away. The Blurb: A reformed villain.After serving two years in a...

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

Book Review | Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

There are plenty of people out there who love Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, I however am not among them. This one popped up on a few lists I was trawling through for my next read. Lists like “Funniest books of all time” and “Best books of all time”, and so on… so I admit my hopes were high for this one. But I found myself fighting not to give up on the book many times. There was just so...

The Haunted Vagina by Carlton Mellick III

Book Review | The Haunted Vagina by Carlton Mellick III

“Bizarro fiction? What’s that?” I thought to myself when I first heard the term. Of course, I needed to look up this previously unheard of genre, landing on suggestions. Most of them fall into the NSFW category, and I guess this one – The Haunted Vagina – does too, to a degree. Depends on how prudish your IT department is about the word ‘Vagina’. Most examples I found looked as if they were trying to outdo each other with outlandish...

Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by RP Momsen

Book Review | Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by RP Momsen

I thought I might like this given the sample read similar to Douglas Adams, but it quickly became apparent that the book was basically trying to copy everything of the Hitchhikers Guide. Almost as if the author had read it, forgot parts of it, then had a go at writing the exact same book. Just the things I noticed before giving up: The Guide-like asides, “Pan Universal Kumquat Juice” – I mean that’s not even trying to hide being a...

They Fight Three Giants

Book Review | 2 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Robert Bevan is an author I’ve been reading for years now. His Critical Failures books in the Caverns and Creatures series are some of the most re-read books on my Kindle. Between each Critical Failures books he puts out 6 short stories which eventually get bundled into their own six-pack. These are the most recent two which I read one after another (I was behind a little since it took a few weeks for them to get onto Kindle Unlimited)....

The Rules of Supervillainy by CT Phipps

Book Review | The Rules of Supervillainy by CT Phipps

This was a funny and entertaining book to read. So Gary, our “hero” of the story leads a dull life where he wants nothing more than to be a supervillain. Of course this wish is fulfilled when the magical cloak of the foremost (and newly deceased) hero of the city turns up on his doorstep. Suddenly he gets everything he wants and becomes Merciless: The Supervillain Without Mercy. The tautology alone should give you an idea what this book is...

Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

Book Review | Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

I should preface this review with a <POSSIBLE SPOILERS> warning since Goddamned Freaky Monsters is book 5 in The Tome of Bill series. If you’ve not read the first four, maybe look away now. After reading the first 4 books in quick succession I decided a short break was in order before continuing with the series. That short break turned into 6 months as other books kept demanding my attention. But finally I’m back on the Bill train, having finished...
